Realizing the need for a school to cater to the special needs of teenagers and young adults with unique gifts, Maxine decided to open a place of learning for just that purpose. The Maxima Institute of Higher Learning not only provides students with the education they need to get a job and live a full life in the real world but it’s also a safe refuge for those who are persecuted for what they are. Not just a safe place for those who are challenged socially for being different, but the Maxima Institute of Higher Learning has an open door for all students who possess unique gifts. To the outside world, the Maxima Institute of Higher Learning is simply just another Boarding School that caters to the special needs of it's students who are mentally challenged but wish to have every opportunity that others have but cannot gain elsewhere.
The Institute has three places that is considered as the whole. The first is an underground bunker with a large mansion on top of it. The mansion is a place for students to live, eat and play outdoor sports. The mansion is also a boarding school since many of the students have no other place to live. The underground bunker is used for all normal educational needs and the space station that orbits Earth is used for any education for the special gifts the students possess in order to provide a safe environment for their training. The public at large have no idea about the underground bunker or the space station.
Grades 6-12 as well as college courses are provided by Maxima's Institute of Higher Learning. It includes all the normal classes one would expect in most public schools. It also has Undergraduate education, Graduate education, Lifelong learning and classes designed to teach students about their unique gifts. Training classes to teach control over these gifts are completely optional, but it is not the main function of the Institute.
The mansion for the Institute of Higher Learning is a very large building that has up to 500 rooms and can hold up to 1,000 students or more if each room has more than one student bunking together. This is often the case since the Institute is one of the very few places on Earth that offers a safe refuge for mutants. The mansion is also a three story building and holds up to forty bathrooms per floor. Boys and girls are separated by each living in a different part of the mansion. Each student is responsible for cleaning their own room and doing their own laundry. The floors, hallways, bathrooms and other rooms that the students do not live in are cleaned by hired help. There is also an indoor swimming pool for the students to have access to during daylight hours. There is also a movie theater that shows all the latest movies that are coming out or it can show older movies the students wish to see. Curfew is 9:00 PM sharp on weekdays and anyone not in their rooms on time is given detention for one week.
The mansion has five star level chefs who are responsible for cooking and preparing healthy meals for the students on a daily basis. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are all served at 7:00 AM, 12:00 PM Noon and 5:00 PM with each meal time being 60 minutes long before the doors close. A large cafeteria capable of seating up to 2,000 students is used for eating and dining purposes. Snacks are also offered to hungry students to curb their appetites in between meals and are mostly of healthy foods, such as fruits, nuts and breads with spreads included. Junk food is provided as well, but sparingly.
The mansion resides in the country several miles north of Metro City and it is surrounded by such a thick line of pine trees as to make it impossible to see from the ground. The mansion sits in a clearing that is, more or less, equal to the length of two football fields. This is the place that is typically used for teacher parking, student parking (if applicable), a golf course, a garden maze, a kart race track and a field that is used for sporting events as well as games for the students to use for outdoor activities. No powers are allowed while playing outside the mansion.
Mutant guards watch the place who are disguised as just regular security guards. Each one possesses a different power set and all are trained, to protect the students from any intruders. To the outside world, these are just normal men and woman just trying to do their jobs. Aside from this, the mansion itself does not possess any security system beyond what is normally found in other mansions just like it.
The underground bunker that is just beneath the Institute is even larger than the building on top of it. It has two to three times as many rooms and bathrooms, many of which are locked off. It has enough food to feed 2,000 people for five years and it has a vast garden that provides enough air to last an entire lifetime. The bunker was created for emergencies and Maxine Maxima spared no expense making sure her students would be safe in the event the worst happened, such as the end of the world.
The bunker also serves as the place of education for every conceivable class one can think of in a public school. The various classrooms, however, have a distinctive science fiction feel about them since the bunker looks like it came out of some futuristic sci-fi show. Even better, the place even comes with everything one would expect and that includes sliding doors, robotic assistants, futuristic buttons and much more. This is the place where students get their education and the place where teachers have their offices, as well as any living arrangements for them should any of them decide to live on campus.
The bunker’s walls are made of an unknown exotic metal that is at least six feet thick as to stop even the strongest super-being from breaking through them. The molecules of the walls are also highly resistant to phasing powers, even by those with a connection to the Speed Force. The bunker can withstand several direct hits from a 50 megaton nuclear bomb before being breached and compromised. The bunker’s security is also far tighter than the mansion sitting on top of it. In times of emergency, thick walls will slam down to protect anyone inside and stop anyone outside from getting in. As an added measure, force fields are also used for this purpose which have both anti-phasing and repelling extremely strong beings from breaking in. Quantum security makes it extremely difficult to hack into any of the doors or security systems with several layers of quantum encryption and fire walls created by mutants who specialize in technology.
Turrets strategically placed throughout the bunker are hidden in the ceilings and floors. Each turret has a cutting edge targeting system that is capable of recognizing enemies through every possible imaging scan one can imagine. Each student who is registered at the Institute is automatically safe from being the target of these turrets unless they prove themselves a threat. The turrets are capable of encasing a threat inside a force field that is capable of containing a super-human who is able to lift 100 tons. Anti-phasing is also included in these force fields. Other armaments include shooting lasers that travel 186,000 per second and fire extinguishing foam that is capable of putting out even the worst and hottest fires.
The Space Station
The science fiction aspect of the bunker is carried over to the space station. Teleporter tubes provided by the Justice League Alliance give the students the capability of beaming up to the station or down to the bunker, perhaps even the mansion, whenever they want to. A special teleporter room is even assigned to key areas around the mansion, bunker and space station. The controls are easily understandable and taught to each registered student upon being accepted into the Institute.
On the space station, classes are designed to teach about astronomy, alien places, alien life, alien biology and everything involving life on other worlds. Education and training with the gifts that the students may have are also provided but only as an optional choice. Space walking, field trips to other worlds via space ships and extreme sporting events where special gifts are allowed are all held here on the space station.
The security here is very similar to what it is in the underground bunker. There are also additional security measures, such as safety protocols when a breach occurs that sucks everything in space. When such breaches occur, a force field automatically forms to prevent any of the room’s occupants from being pulled out into space. As a secondary feature, a bulkhead slides down to seal any potential breach. Another security feature is the cloaking device that renders the space station invisible to all known imaging scans and sensors so it remains completely undetected by Earth’s governments.
Book of Imaginaton
Provided by Brenna Luther this is a very special book provided to the Institute for not only educational needs for the students but also for any optional training that may be taken. Basically, if a student imagines it then the book brings it to life using powerful magical illusions that can be as real as one believes them to be. The next step is for the student to lay a hand on a page of the book and they are pulled inside of it to live in the fantasy world they have created. Everything the student lives through is not truly real and cannot harm them. The passage of time is non-existent and they could theoretically live in this magical world for an eternity if they wished. To leave, all they have to do is wish it out loud and a door of escape is provided for them.
The Institute holds annual sporting events of various kinds, a class president like public schools, a talent show, costume parties, etc. Any and all students are encouraged to take part and even the teachers are welcomed to get involved.
Meet the Teachers
The teachers are comprised mainly of people who also possess unique gifts of their own. Having a secret identity is preferable when applying for this position but not required. The teachers are typically well trained to handle most situations and have a mind geared towards giving their students a brighter future with a strong education.
